Welcome to Holmfirth artWEEK
The Holmfirth Artweek Committee invite you to apply for the 2013 Exhibition at Holmfirth Civic Hall. The exhibition starts on SUNDAY 7th JULY 2013. Artweek is open to all artists, both amateur and professional. Each person may submit up to two pieces. There is no selection process for the public entries, but space is limited so an impartial draw is held to select each year's exhibitors.
Holmfirth Artweek is both proud and privileged to support MacMillan Cancer Support who work hard to improve the lives of people affected by cancer by providing practical, medical, emotional & financial support; as well as campaigning for better cancer care.
We are delighted to announce that local sculptor and ceramicist Jim Robison will be our Featured Artist in 2013. Jim has lived in the Holme Valley since 1975. He established the well known Booth House Gallery as both studio space and a venue to promote other artists’ work. And his work has been part of the Artweek exhibition every year since then.
Artweek is a local event with a national reputation. Most of the exhibitors are from this area but visitors come from all over the country to view and to buy. It is astounding how much artistic talent there is locally, it is this that makes the event such a success, and brings so many visitors to Holmfirth every year.
As Artweek is a fundraising event all work submitted must be for sale. A commission of 20% is charged on sales in the Exhibition, Market & Fringe and all proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support. To view all Artweek facts and figures click here.
